WWE Crown Jewel Predictions
Roman Reigns (C) vs. Logan Paul — Undisputed WWE Universal Championship
|Roman Reigns (C)||-1000||90.91%|
Roman Reigns will head into his title match against Logan Paul on a 795-day reign as the Universal Champion. While Paul becoming champion would certainly make headlines not only in the WWE Universe but around the world due to Paul's massive fan base worldwide, it certainly wouldn't make much sense from a WWE storyline standpoint if Paul were to end Reigns' historic streak.
Expect Reigns to retain and go well over 800-days as champion heading into WWE's next premium live event at the end of the month in the form of the illustrious Survivor Series.
Pick - Roman Reigns (C) (-1000)
Bianca Belair (C) vs. Bayley — Last Woman Standing Match, RAW Women's Championship
|Bianca Belair (C)||-278||73.54%|
This one is perhaps the biggest question mark on the entire card when it comes to a 'big match'. Belair has been dominant as champion and while notching another win over Bayley would only further supplant her standing as RAW Women's Champion, it would actually make more sense if Bayley were to win to extend this feud into the aforementioned Survivor Series event as Bayley's Damage CTRL faction seems poised to be one of the teams involved in the women's War Games match, later this month and a winner-take-all match against Bianca Belair, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss would make all the sense in the world.
Pick - Bayley (+188)
Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley
Brock Lesnar is out of the WWE (or Universal) title picture for the first-time in what seems like a decade. Lesnar lost his WWE Title to Lashley at this past January's Royal Rumble premium live event thanks to the aforementioned Roman Reigns, who took out Lesnar to allow the easy win for Lashley. With no title on the line and with Lesnar being such a big draw for the Saudi Arabia fans in attendance, 'The Beast Incarnate' seems like the no-brainer pick here.
Pick - Brock Lesnar (-333)
Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross — Steel Cage Match
One of the longest feuds on the Crown Jewel card seemingly commences inside of a steel cage when Drew McIntyre takes on the recently-returned Karrion Kross. These two squared off in a strap match at the last premium live event, Extreme Rules, where Kross won, thanks to some assistance from his wife, Scarlett, who temporarily blinded McIntyre with pepper spray. McIntyre should even the score with a win but perhaps Kross will stand tall after some post-match antics from him and Scarlett.
Pick - Drew McIntyre (-149)
The Usos (C) (Jimmy & Jey Uso) vs. The Brawling Brutes (Ridge Holland & Butch) — Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship
|The Usos (C)||-1000||90.9%|
|The Brawling Brutes||+300||25.0%|
Much like their cousin, and The Bloodline leader, Roman Reigns, Jimmy and Jey Uso have seemingly held their titles forever and it doesn't look like it'll stop anytime soon...especially not at Crown Jewel. While Sheamus, Ridge Holland, and Butch have certainly captured the attention of the WWE Universe, the storyline going on with Reigns, The Usos, Solo Sikoa, Sami Zayn, and Paul Heyman is the hottest thing going in not only WWE but in all of professional wrestling. A Win for The Usos seems like the only plausible outcome for this one.
Pick - The Usos (C) (-1000)
Asuka & Alexa Bliss (C) vs. Damage CTRL (Dakota Kai & IYO SKY) — WWE Women's Tag Team Championship
|Alexa Bliss & Asuka (C)||-250||71.4%|
If the aforementioned women's War Games match were to take place, either Bayley or Dakota Kai and IYO SKY would have to walk out of Crown Jewel with some gold for it to make any sense. If Bianca Belair, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss all win their respective matches, their feuds against Damage CTRL would seemingly be over with a War Games match not needing to be necessary. The reason for choosing Bayley to defeat Belair over Kai and SKY to beat Asuka and Bliss is simply because Asuka and Bliss just defeated Kai and SKY to take the latter's titles just a week ago.
Pick - Asuka & Alexa Bliss (-255)
The O.C. (AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson) vs. The Judgment Day (Finn Balor, Dominik Mysterio, and Damian Priest)
|The Judgment Day||+125||44.4%|
While Finn Balor, Dominik Mysterio, Damian Priest, and Rhea Ripley have been doing incredible work with Dominik and Rhea in-particular doing some of the best work of their respective careers, The O.C.'s Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson just returned to the company a few weeks ago and it wouldn't make too much sense for them to take the loss here. Perhaps Priest being pinned would make the most sense since Balor is the leader of the group and it appears as if they're building Dominik Mysterio for something bigger.
Pick - The O.C. (-200)
Braun Strowman vs. Omos
A classic battle of the behemoths goes down when 'The Monster Among Men', Braun Strowman takes on 'The Colossus', Omos. For the first-time in his WWE career, Braun Strowman will be the smaller man as he'll stand across the ring from the near 7-foot-4, Omos on Saturday afternoon. Expect a crazy spot or two from Omos that shocks Strowman but in the end, Strowman winning is the only logical thing that can come from this...with an outside shot that a major spot involving both men taking each other out to cause a no contest also being in play.
Pick - Braun Strowman (-455)
